    A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
    This draft is a work item of the Service Location Protocol Working Group of
    the IETF.

            Title : Conversion of LDAP Schemas to and from SLP
            Author(s) : J. Kempf, R. Moats, P. St. Pierre
            Filename : draft-ietf-svrloc-template-conversion-07.txt
            Pages : 27

    This document describes a procedure for mapping between SLP service
    advertisments and LDAP descriptions of services. The document covers
    two aspects of the mapping. One aspect is mapping between SLP service
    type templates and LDAP directory schema. Because the SLP service
    type template grammer is relatively simple, mapping from service type
    templates to LDAP types is straightforward. Mapping in the other
    direction is straightforward if the attributes are restricted to use
    just a few of the syntaxes defined in RFC 2252. If arbitrary ASN.1
    types occur in the schema, then the mapping is more complex and may
    even be impossible. The second aspect is representation of service
    information in an LDAP directory. The recommended representation
    simplifies interoperability with SLP by allowing SLP directory agents
    to backend into LDAP directory servers. The resulting system allows
    service advertisements to propagate easily between SLP and LDAP.

    NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
            MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
            feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
            command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
            a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
            exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
            "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
            up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
            how to manipulate these messages.
    Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
    implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the

    attached mail follows:

    • application/octet-stream attachment: ATT35814

    • message/external-body attachment: stored
